Hi I'm Jane.

I help people get "unstuck" and live

meaningful lives.

Coaching | Consulting | Workshops + Speaking



I am a coach, speaker, and trainer who supports groups and individuals on making sustainable, positive change across any area of life.

I take a Co-Active approach to coaching which means everything we do is focused on your individual values, wants, needs, and goals. I partner with clients to drive forward progression on anything from launching a new business, thriving in new management responsibilities, to navigating a personal change like moving across the country or world.

My work is much more than simple life coaching or career coaching. It’s complete coaching. I help clients view their worlds and the changes taking place in a new way. I create a safe space to explore thoughts and desires that a client might not yet admit to themselves. I offer accountability to help make real change when it’s desired.

Most of my clients are high performing individuals both at work and in life who understand that growth, success, and fulfillment is driven by you, but influenced by your support system. You don’t need a coach by your side, you have to want one; I’d love to be the coach who helps you reach new heights.

I am currently working towards my International Coach Federation (ICF) credentials through the Coaches Training Institute (CTI), the largest, oldest, and most intensive in-person coach training in the world. I also hold a certification in life coaching through the International Coaching Science Research Foundation.


1:1 Coaching

This is where magic happens. Working together one-on-one we can dive deep into your wants and desires. We partner together on anything from setting clear goals to breaking through the barriers created by limiting beliefs that you may even been aware of. I’ll help you create a clear vision to realize fulfillment, happiness, and success, and then help you achieve it.

Workshops + Speaking

Groups take on a life and energy of their own, and create a unique learning and growth environment. I build original and effective workshops on personal and professional development topics for organizations and academic institutions of various sizes. I deliver keynote motivational speeches on anything from women’s empowerment to goal setting.

I’ve spoken and led programs  at universities, trade schools, non-profits, and large organizations and can tailor or create programs to fit a range of topics.

Career Consulting + Strategy

Careers are tricky to navigate. Sometimes you need an external POV.  I offer career consulting services to individuals on anything from interview preparation, job search strategy, role transition, and more.

I also offer workplace consulting to organizations who want a new view on their culture or talent management, particularly related to young leaders, women, remote workers, and high performers.


I had a long-time dream of moving to Europe but was unsure of how to navigate a new job market where I lacked a network. Not only was I looking for a visa, but I was also wanted to move out of operations. 

Jane helped me get clear about what I wanted and tell my story in a confident, compelling way. She was also the best motivator during (many) times of insecurity and doubt.

Four short months later, I am moving to Berlin to work in strategic partnerships!

Jane has a gift for breaking down complex goals into manageable, achievable steps. She helped me realize how much I have to offer and has empowered me to build a life I love.

Danke, Jane!

Jane was beyond helpful. I have been feeling stuck in regards to whether to stick with a business I’ve started or find a full-time job. I had talked to so many friends and family members and thought about the decision so much that I was in decision paralysis.

Jane helped me clear up my thoughts and feelings about it so that I can move onto the next step without regret. I finally found clarity, and she gave me confidence that I can go out and do amazing things. I look forward to working with her in the future!

I’ve been working with Jane Scudder for six months now and have been really happy with the growth she’s helped me achieve. Jane challenges me, in a highly supportive way, to see things from a new perspective. She helped me discover effective and creative ways to focus on what really mattered and recognize my accomplishments as I was juggling a long-distance move, a new profession, and moving away from my sons. In addition, knowing I have to report what I’ve accomplished between sessions helps me focus and turn good ideas into solid action.

I highly recommend Jane Scudder as a coach!

The best way to understand my coaching is to experience it. To allow for this, and to determine if we’re a good fit, I offer an absolutely free sample Co-Active coaching session. During this time you’ll get actual coaching on any topic of your choice.  We’ll also review what it is that you wish to accomplish and I can answer any questions about my approach, style, and background.

For workshops, speaking engagements, and consulting projects it’s best to start with a quick email and we can set up a longer consultation.

The longer you wait the longer you'll feel stuck

(Or just wonder more about what my coaching is like!)
